Throwback Thursday: Silver Fox
Throwback Thursday is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Heather Stewart-Whyte
The Moment: Spray-painted hair
The Motivation: The Fall 2013 shows were full of beauty moments we can’t wait to replicate, like those fluffy “Jodie Foster inTaxi Driver” pin curls at Bottega Veneta or the smudged russet eyes at Gucci. (Check out our full guide here.) One thing we were surprised to see sticking around was colored hair, though if there were someone who could breathe new life into the trend, it would be Luigi Murenu. He created the incredibly intricate and vividly hued rosette crops at Givenchy, which, we couldn’t help but notice, bear a striking similarity to model Heather Stewart-Whyte’s cropped ’do in the above Elle image, which was shot circa 1992. Granted, her look is more otherworldly than Murenu’s “sensitive” rosettes, but the resemblance is pretty uncanny. Not quite ready to dye your hair pink, blue, or silver? Just wig it.
